Future - BITW Challenge

Will you take a look at Jack in this photo? The poor little guy was trying sooooo hard to do a nice smile for his school photo, I think he must have almost strained something, lol! And he's really stretching his neck out there too! I still love it though, he was such a little cutie when he was in grade 1. Sometimes I almost can't believe he's now in grade 6!! Where did that time go?!


So this layout is for a word challenge at the moment at Bird is the Word. To use the word 'Future' in either your title or journalling. I want this page to be a sort of title page for Jack's grade 1 photos in his school album, so I have used the word 'future' in my journalling...


Did you spot those cute definition badges? They are from Greatest View, and I just love them! And the papers are all Bella, from a few different ranges. I've decided to keep the school albums very simple, so this was a nice quick page using up my scraps.


And I just have to post this photo on here too. This happens all the time...


Some of you might have seen on facebook a few weeks ago that a stray cat wandered into our home, and decided she might move in. From the very start she acted like she'd lived here all her life! We were never going to get a cat, because poor old Jack is super allergic to them, but this little critter has other ideas. Still not quite sure what to do with her, I know we shouldn't keep her, but who could resist that sweet face? And EVERY time I try to photograph a layout she jumps on top of it and just stares at me. A bit of a camera hog, I think! Or maybe scrapbook pages just feel nice to sit on, LOL!

Hope you have a great day!
